CHAPTER 1 WAVES1.1 Understanding Waves ( ……………/ 25 X 100 % = ……………… )Learning Outcomes
A student is able to :
Describe what is meant by wave motion.
Recognise that waves transfer energy without transferring matter.
Compare transverse and longitudinal waves and give examples of each.
State what is meant by a wavefront.
State the direction of propagation of waves in relation to wavefronts
.definei. amplitudeii. period,iii. frequency,iv. wavelength,v. wave speed.
Sketch and interpret a displacement-time graph for a wave.
Sketch and interpret a displacement-distance graph for a wave,
Clarify the relationship between speed, wavelength and frequency
.Solve problems involving speed, wavelength and frequency.
Describe damping in a oscillating system.
